Default sublimation completely washed out in washing machine

hello to everybody I'm kinda new to this and thought I had it pretty well figured out but I was wrong lol. I did an order on some shirts and they completely washed out in the washing machine. I used a sawgrass sg800 printer with the sawgrass ink and pressed them at 400 degrees for 60 seconds as i was instructed. and the shirts were the 3001c bella-canvas from jiffy shirt. anybody have an idea what went wrong

These are COTTON t-shirts. You can only sublimate POLYESTER garments, preferably with 100% polyester, or at least a high proportion.

Sublimating a cotton t-shirt will always look great, and will ALWAYS wash out in the first wash.

You'd do well to read up about the sublimation process before wasting any more time and money. There's a lot of information about it in these forums.
